This is as close as anyone can get to Niagara Falls—without riding over them in a barrel, of course. This seasonal (May to October) tour travels to all the edges of the falls.

The journey begins with an elevator ride down into the Niagara Gorge, where wooden walkways along the Niagara River lead to the observation deck of the Cave of the Winds, just a few feet from the powerful rush of the falls. It’s like being caught in a tropical storm. This is what it means to be close to Niagara Falls. Really close.

Then it’s another elevator ride up to the only panoramic view of all three Niagara Falls—the American, Bridal Veil and Horseshoe Falls—from the observation tower. Stand over Niagara Gorge with an unobstructed view of all three as the waters rage below.

Finally, hop on board the popular Maid of the Mist for a boat ride to the very edge of the Canadian Horseshoe Falls, the most powerful waterfall in North America.

Notice: The Maid of the Mist departs from the U.S. side of Niagara Falls. All customers must have proper credentials to enter the United States.

Operating dates of the Maid of the Mist and Cave of the Winds are approximate and depend on weather conditions.

Great Tour, Great Tour Guide!

We did the Maid of the Mist tour on Sunday June 6, 2021. Tom was our tour guide, and he was the BEST! He was full of knowledge, jokes and kept us on schedule. The tour included a few stops at some places we wouldn't have otherwise seen. However, our favorite parts were the Boat and the Cave of the Winds! Would definitely recommend to anyone, and would personally do it again! To Tom: The 2 Wisconsin girls really enjoyed your tour, and being your right-hand women! Until next time!

We loved Maid of the Mist and Cave of the Mist. Our tour guide, Marty, was great. My 7 year old gave him 100 out of 10 stars as we were exiting the tour bus.

Love this tour!! Nancy was very informative and worked hard to make sure we all had a good time. I would describe her job as a kindergarten teacher keeping track of her 20 Students on a field trip. And she had 3 adult students who struggled to be on time and stay with the group. Consequently we did not get a chance to eat or shop like some of the others did. Nancy did her best to make sure we had the best time possible!!!❤️ Would do this tour again !

Tour was amazing, nice to have someone directing you. Roland was a nice guy! 4 of 5 because it was a little to fast paced, preferred to get more break time for water and restrooms versus story time. Also, the driving was a little fast, but this is New York and we are from the Midwest. Just slow if down on the curves!

It was a dream come true. We had fun every day. The tour guy (Rolland) was a very professional and provided all the history from the early days till today about the falls. I will come back for more.

I enjoyed taking the boat tour because it allowed us to see the great magnitude of the falls. I also enjoyed how we were able to go to several locations and take pictures off all the different angles of the falls and other structures pertaining to the falls such as the whirlpool. Overall it was a great tour.
